This evening associated with River Rocks October’s celebration of getting outdoors provides an opportunity for nature lovers and families  to tune their ears to the sounds of nature.

Frog Walk 7:00 pm

When you hear the ribbits and croaking of frogs in the evening have you wondered what type of frog is making each sound.  Is it a giant bull frog of a small tree frog?   During his presentation and walk, UTC Graduate Student Paul-Erik Bakland will teach you how to identify frogs by the calls  they makes.  You will also learn about the important role frogs play in the ecosystem, what is causing their population to deplete, and how to help frog populations grow.

Owl Prowl 8:15 pm

Owls say more than hoot hoot.  Each species of owl has their own special call.  Join UTC professor and owl enthusiast, Dr. David Aborn for an evening walk where you will learn the different calls owls make. As  you walk  Dr. Aborn will play recorded owl calls.  You will have an opportunity to learn what type of owls are living at Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature  Center by listening to them respond to the recording.

Cost: Adults $10 Children $7.
